An exhibition dedicated to one of the best-known sons of Lincolnshire is at Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre for the whole of this month.

Sir Joseph Banks accompanied Captain James Cook to the Pacific and beyond.

His natural and botanical discoveries have left a lasting and significant legacy worldwide and this touring exhibition is to raise people’s awareness and understanding of this aspect of Lincolnshire’s heritage that currently remains hidden and intangible to many people living in Lincolnshire and beyond.

The exhibition has been funded through a Heritage Lottery Fund grant with The Collection: Art & Archaeology in Lincolnshire working in partnership with the Sir Joseph Banks Society.

Admission is free and the exhibition will be at Caistor until April 30.
